open derby in 30 years, there were at
least ten horses with an equal chance
of winning," was the the opinion of
prominent trainers for the probable
outcome of the races at Epsom to

sovereigns. In addition to the open
ness of race the presence of King

contestants is a drawing card. There

should Pcrrier win, for it would be
the first time Edward as king has won
a derby though his colors won when
he was the Prince of Wales. A king's
horse has never yet won Epsom'j

F. HOME'S SPEECH
Chief of Police of Cleveland a
ARRESTS HAVE DECREASED
Convention of the International As
sociation of Chiefs of Police at De
troit, June 2-Says Wholesale Ar
rests Do No Good.
For many years I have given con
fused study and some not very en
lightening observations to the numer
ous arrests made for minor offenses.
I could not see that these wholesale
arrests did any good. The number
did not diminish; it increased, and I
find that the arrests not only did not
produce good results, but did harm
They brought disgrace, humiliation
and suffering to countless innocent
persons in no way responsible for the
acts of a thoughtless, careless, mis
chievous, or even, if you will, malici
ous first offender.
I finally concluded that it was our
duty not to help these unfortunates
on their downward course, but to save
them. It seemed to me it was up to
the police to learn to know the differ
ence between a thief and a mischiev
ous mitn or boy. And why not? I
decided to experiment. I determined
my policemen use their best human
instincts. I propose my men should
exercise that discretion which the
judges don't always exercise.
Every misdemeanor and crime was
dissected and we decided together
just how far the policies were to be
applied. Juveniles were never to be
placed in city prisons: They were
to be taken home or their parents
sent for and the child turned over to
them with a warning for parental cor
rection. Intoxicated persons were
to be taken or sent home unless it
seemed necessary for the protection
of their lives or their property to con
fine them until sober.
The force was shown how by con
stantly carrying out this policy they
would save many hours in court, a
matter of great importance to officers

FOR BABIES' SAKE
Chicago Physicians and Nurses
Form a Merciful Trust
SCIENCE OF INFANT CARE
Kindergarten For Young Mothers
Splendid Purposes Founded on Un
failing Methods Hundreds of
Trained People In It
NEW YORK, June 2.-Physician
and representatives of fifty hospitals,
charitable and municipal organiza
tions, nurseries and diet kitchens
banded themselves together at a meet
ing held at the Department of Health
to cooperate with health commis
sioner. Darlington, in. a campaign
against mortality among infants this
summer. Every, agency, known to
medical and sanitary science will be
employed to reduce the death rate in
the next four months.
According to the plan adopted each
bureau will be divided into districts
so that there can be no overlapping
of territory. As marny milk depots,
physicians and nurses as needed will
be supplied to each district. It was
also decided to issus cards of instruc
tions to mother, which it is said will
be radically differenct from those sent
out before. The cards will be dis
tributed by thousands.
Besides giving explicit instructions
on the feeding, clothing and bathing
and necessity for fresh air for babies,
the card will give the location of the
milk depots in each district recreation
centers, recreation piers, hospitals
and all other agencies for the assist
ance of the mothers.
The campaign of education is to
begin at once. More than eighty
nurses will be employed who will hunt
out every home in the city where
there has been a birth since April 1
and begin instructing the mother how
to care of her children. The nurses
in each district will learn to know
the mothers and keep in such close
touch with each that the moment a
baby becomes ill they will be ready to
give the best treatment known for its
recovery. It is expected that the ser
vices of more than sixty physicians
will be needed in addition to nurses.
